    My MS Store order now finally says this:

    The order lifecycle since the initial submission was changing to pending, then disappearing from my orders list for a week (though still accessible from the direct link in the confirmation mail) to now saying the above. No confirmation of a credit card withdrawal yet though.

    I checked my credit card balance the other day and it shows the console charge as pending, so that should be good news. Well not as good news as them giving me it for free.

    If you used all Microsoft Credit(mixture of Microsoft Rewards & gift cards) like I did they took it all the moment I made my pre-order. Still no tracking number, just "estimated Nov 10" like Wavey.

    I have a FedEx tracking number & a Nov 10 delivery date! Time is no later than 4:30pm. :runaway:

    Admittedly, this is so weird. I'm getting two consoles through the mail next week. I have fond memories of console launches, standing outside of EBGames, Babbages and then Gamestop. I planned to bring my boys with me to experience them then Covid hit. Granted, I'm older and while this experience doesn't hit me like it did the younger me, I still have a level of euphoria for these events. To my kids currently, these are just more things that Dad is getting from Amazon and I know that this is a first world problem and it speaks from privilege to be able to say this but I was really looking forward to them seeing what a gaming launch is like, why out of all of the things I buy, these are the devices I would wait outside a store till midnight for. I'm not dense nor am I really remorseful as I know that there are far greater issues currently but my kids somewhat define me through my gaming. (My mancave is 99% dedicated to to the artform) I just wanted to be able to share that moment with them.

    I do not know if this will continue, but if we get the virus under control, you may have a chance to show them something similar when a major new release hits. Digital is definitely going to continue to eat into this but when Destiny launched I was there at midnight. The line outside the Gamestop was the second longest I have ever seen for a video game related release. Plenty of people picked up consoles as well. I think a COD launched that same night though. (Halo 2 was the longest by far. If I had to guess I would say 1000 yards or so.) Maybe see what happens when something like GTA6 launches? Might be worth a look and one of the last chances for that kind of experience.

    Oh, happy day. My son's birthday, some degree of political sanity confirmed in the world and a tracking number sent to me. Best day of 2020...?

    Yours originate from Louisville KY too? Mine got to Memphis TN. Says they won't deliver before its scheduled date but would be cool if I could get it Monday. Heard others were getting theirs early. My luck I will get it late Tuesday or Thursday. Wednesday is Veteran's Day. So I doubt they ship anything then.

    Yup, Louisville KY (2020-11-05) out to Memphis TN (2020-11-06). Has the same annoying message about not being delivered until Tuesday too. :-|

    I now know whose opinion has the least bias when comparing console and PC gaming :)

    I still haven't had a chance to buy ps5. At this point I will probably wait until end of 2021 and look for black friday deals. Assuming that situation normalizes and black friday deals are available.
